Consultants generally procured on the basis of deliverables, as part of specific projects. As at 21 May, 191 individuals were working under paid consultancy arrangements within Tfl's organisational structure, although 125 of these are working in a project management capacity. Of the remaining 66, 41 had been here greater than 6 months and 30 longer than 12 months.
